So I’ve been seeing posts of a friend of mine of his 6 year old son kicking but at chess tournaments and I was totally surprised… 6 year olds can play chess? I started showing my 6 year old twins a move or two and quickly realised that they could do much more than we think. George Harrolds of Kaoori Chess sets is going to tell us more about the benefits of chess for kids’ development.

Uiteindelik soos belowe, die begin van my nuwe Werkboekies reeks! Hierdie is die eerste een, so laat weet gerus as daar ‘n foutjie opduik, hierdie is nog die toets fase. Die idee is om ‘n werkboekie vir elke letter van die Alfabet te maak en dan daarna om nog meer voorbeelde vir elke letter te doen met verskillende aktiwiteite.Read the rest of this entry

In this digital era, it is easy and affordable to purchase the latest gadgets and gain access to technology. One often finds children riveted to tablets, smartphones or a computer screen, engrossed in playing games, or their attention is glued to the television set. Studies have shown that the usage of gadgets can cause children to have a limited attention span. Such habits lead children towards a sedentary lifestyle from a young age. This can cause multiple health issues, both physical and mental. It also affects children’s reasoning power, the capability of thinking logically and hampers their creative mind. Initiating children into a sports activity or helping them inculcate a hobby or enrolling them in a creative / performing arts class can serve as a great motivation for kids to break the monotony of their usual routine and spend some time doing something fun and creative.
Here are my top five ways to help your child to improve their focus.Read the rest of this entry
This one is A3 size but you can set your printer for A4 if you wish to print smaller size. I highly recommend that you take the high res file (10MB) to a printer and print out 2 copies of the A3 and laminate both. The one is for the wall as a poster and the other can be cut in the middle of the green lines to make flashcards.
The smaller file (250kb) can be printed A4 without quality loss but might be too small for a poster and way too small for flashcards. The low res A3 might be a little less on quality but still ok if it doesn’t bother you. Read the rest of this entry

This one is a great project for the homeschoolers and also great fun for all kids and young-at-heart adults who love drawing cartoons or anything for that matter! Sketching is one of the things I love to do in my free time and now with one of the wonderful Apps Apple brought us, called “Paper by 53”, it has become so much easier and quicker to create a work of art on the fly. All your palettes, pencils and erasers are right there in one place so it doesn’t take so much time to set up and pack away a whole art set.Read the rest of this entry
